Make a holiday apartment in Benicarlo your home away from home

For an understated and classically Mediterranean getaway you could browse HomeAway’s choice of holiday apartments in Benicarlo. It’s a town within a region known for its agriculture, nature and traditional fishing villages. Visiting a holiday home in Benicarlo you can enjoy great food, sublime sandy beaches and choose from a catalogue of places to visit, from action-packed theme parks to areas of unspoiled natural splendour. Benicarlo holiday apartments are devised to match the requirements of families, especially those who are seeking a little indulgence; private pools are offered by many rentals, alongside all the comforts, connectivity and functionality you’d expect from a 21st Century home.

Things to do

-Beaches. In the Benicarlo area there are three sandy beaches – Mar Xica, Morongo and Gurugu. At more than a kilometre in length Mar Xica is the largest, and is also equipped with excellent services and facilities. In contrast, Gurugu is an 800-metre beach that is off the beaten track and unfrequented, even in the middle of the summer. Morrongo meanwhile is consistently awarded Blue Flag status for its superb amenities and cleanliness, and is close to Benicarlo’s restaurants and shops.

-Local heritage. Benicarlo was originally a Moorish town, and the layout from this time has been preserved to the present day. There are plenty of surprising little historical flourishes on the streets here, not least the coats of arms that still adorn many of the old stone buildings. The most attractive monuments in the town are the churches, mostly in the Baroque style. St. Bartholomew, with its octagonal bell-tower is a fantastic example.

-Nature. There’s a wonderful variety of terrain surrounding Benicarlo, from rocky limestone hills to the Ebre River Delta, home to wetlands. A little way north, the Serra del Montsia, with its craggy peaks and olive groves on its lower slopes, is a fabulous place for a walk. If you hold an interest in birdlife then the Ebre Delta is the place to go, with 95 species of breeding birds, and more than 300 overwintering species.

-Food and drink. What makes the cuisine of this area so exciting is its coastal location, combined with the rich fertility of the local soils. The town is surrounded by citrus orchards, and is close to one of Spain’s best-known rice-growing regions. It’s natural that rice-based seafood dishes like paella and black rice (sautéed squid or cuttlefish) are favourites here. Also keep an eye out for local artichokes, which have even earned designation of origin for their high quality.

-Day trips. The cities of Valencia and Tarragona are both moderate drives away. Valencia has some astounding modern architecture at the recent City of Arts and Science complex. In the other direction, Tarragona is celebrated for its history and was even the centre of the Roman empire for a short time. Outside Reus, families should be sure not to miss Port Aventura, possibly Spain’s top theme park.

Weather in Benicarlo

If you’re holidaying at Benicarlo self-catering accommodation in the summer, then it pays to pack for warm, sunny weather. Any time between May and October you can expect conditions that would be considered hot in the UK. By July and August daily highs regularly climb to the low-30s, and rain takes place only in short bursts. The remainder of the year gets pleasantly warm and mild weather, with more by way of rain. On a normal day in December for example, temperatures will peak in the mid-teens, and stay above freezing at night.

Travel to Benicarlo

Benicarlo lies between Barcelona and Valencia on the Mediterranean coast. Possibly the most convenient airport for Benicarlo holiday homes is Reus (REU), 120 kilometres northeast of the town. This destination gets a lot of traffic from the UK, particularly in the summer, when there are plenty of low-cost airlines serving Reus. By car, you can simply join the AP-7 toll road, for a journey that shouldn’t take more than an hour. There’s also a train station in Benicarlo, with links to both Valencia and Barcelona.

The apartment is big and very well equipped. There are two veranda's for sunbathing and enjoying the amazing views down to the sea and also a swimming pool to cool down in. We spent quite a few evenings on the upper balcony barbequing and enjoying the views. There are lots of restaurants in Alcossebre to choose from and are only about a 10 minute drive away. The beaches in Alcossebre and all along the coast are amazing they are all cleaned daily and offer lovely long walks along the promenade. A trip to Valencia is also very worthwhile. We did not see Ross or Lynda very much during our stay but they were there if we needed anything. Thank you Ross and Lynda for letting us stay in your lovely apartment and for your kind hospitality, it was lovely meeting you both.

The house itself was utterly fabulous - 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 5 metres from the pool and a good walk into the resort of Alcossebre. We couldn't have asked for any more.

The pool is perfect for cooling down in and the many beaches - both rocky and sandy depending on which you prefer - are a very short drive away if you want to swim. We loved the snorkelling on the closest beach, which benefitted from being within the National Park and therefore there was lots to sea. I also hired a road bike as the surrounding area is perfect (and also challenging) for both road and off road cycling. Indeed, the National Park has many off road trials whilst road routes include both inland and coastal routes. Just remember that you will always need to cycle up the fairly steep hill to the property at the end of every ride. The town benefitted from both some excellent small delis and also a decent supermarket. We used Antonios for our meat and cheese and the Supermarket for just about everything else. Bread can be bought from the Supermarket, but the Panaderia next to Antonio's was fresh daily. In terms of activities, a day out to Morrella, which included lunch was excellent as was a trip to the St Josep caves, which can only be accessed by boat. Peniscola was a popular town but parking was difficult and prices high. We ate out in Alossebre as well, which had a number of restaurants producing food from traditional through to pizza and Mexican. The house had an excellent master bedroom. Those in bedrooms on the lower floor did get bitten by mosquitos. We had a number of BBQs on the lovely patio looking out across the bay whilst breakfast and lunch were taken on the balcony adjoining the kitchen, again with superb views. You will need to do a shop before you arrive to cover the first day prior to getting your bearings. Overall, a very nice property suitable for both families and adult groups who wish to chill. Would also suit cycling enthusiasts.
